2. The song

    There's just two weeks of school left and I'm dieing for summer to come. I pull myself out of bed and get ready for the day, I eat cereal for breakfast. Just as I finish my cereal I hear a honk and run out the door, Zayn smiles as I come into his car and says "Hey, nice outfit." I look down and notice I'm still wearing my pajamas, the worst part is they're boxers that have little hearts all over them. My cheeks turn bright red "oh, sorry." He laughs "why are you apologizing?" "I don't know, I'll be right back." He just keeps laughing while I quickly run into my room pull on my jeans, and run back down to his car. "There is that better?" "I don't know, I think I liked the boxers better." He pulls out of the driveway and turns onto the road, It takes a while for me to notice he isn't driving to school. "Where are you going?" "Oh yah I forgot to tell you, we're skipping first hour." "What, why" he does this sometimes, usually so we can hang out or so I can help him prepare for the school choir concert, something like that. Before he can answer he pulls into the park and gets out of the car, "I wanted to show you the new song I learned." I follow him to a picnic table and sit down. "Tell me what you think" he waits a little, then slowly starts singing. I know the song, but it's like its brand new coming from him.

Baby I just don't get it

Do you enjoy being hurt?

I know you smelled the perfume, the make-up on his shirt

You don't believe his stories

You know that they're all lies

Bad as you are, you stick around and I just don't know why

    Just as he finishes the first verse a spark lights up in my mind, the contest, he would be perfect. Before he can sing the second part I yell "stop", he looks confused. "What?" "Zayn, there's this contest, it's for singing, and the auditions start in three weeks, you would be perfect for it." He waits a while and takes it all in then he starts laughing, "Zoe, your crazy, I could never do it, I'm, not that good." "Yes you can, you’re amazing, I could help you get ready for it." When he realizes I'm not kidding he thinks about it for a little bit and says "I don't think I can, but if you help I guess I could try." We decide that we would practice everyday after school until the auditions and he will sing the song he just did, Let Me Love You by Mario. I can tell he's still unsure about it all though, he still doesn't think I'm completely serious. It's getting late and I can't miss my English class so we drive back to school. The car ride is quiet, but I don't say anything because I know he's thinking hard about the contest. He glances my way and says "are you sure I can do this, I mean I always liked singing but I never thought it would become something." I can tell he doesn't think he can do it "I'm positive." We don't say anything else until we get to school and run in because we hear a bell. I find an open seat next to Mary and take it, she turns and whispers "where have you been?" I didn't really want to say what happened with Zayn because he doesn't want everyone to be talking about it. Plus, I'm like the only person who knows he can sing, so I just say "Zayn slept in, so I had to wait for him to get up." She laughs “He’s so funny, I love it." I laugh and nod my head. Mary is a good friend but sometimes she's hard to be around, she's pretty and a lot of boys like her, she's also annoying and only cares about herself. She only likes Zayn because he's good looking; she barely knows anything about him though. I bet she couldn't even tell me his last name. Class is boring and long, but I get through on the thought that there are only like four more classes left.

    At lunch I sit by Mary, Zayn and all there friends. They all talk about parties and going to the beach but I just stay quiet and eat my food, I'm normally not invited to those, but Zayn makes me come. "So, who wants to go to the beach tomorrow?" Elisa asks. "It's supposed to be warm so I thought it would be fun, we could even jump off the docks." "I'm up for some fun" Mary adds. Everyone else agrees and Zayn turns to me "Do you wanna come?" I can't swim well and he knows it but I guess I could just watch "sure." The bell rings and everyone walks in separate directions, I have gym with Zayn. When schools done Zayn takes me home and we sit in my backyard to practice. Zayn's staring at me. "What?" He waits a little and says "Your serious about this aren't you?" "Completely, you can do it, you’re such a great singer." He laughs "You’re my friend, you’re supposed to say that. Tell me the truth." I can't, the truth is his voice makes me fall in love with him, it sounds like an angel, it's so smooth and in a way, dangerous. Instead of saying all that I just tell him "It's the best thing I've ever heard." He looks shocked but then just starts cracking up. "What?" he barely makes the word out. "I mean it, I love hearing it." I'm sad he doesn't believe me, it's so true. "Zoe, you’re ridiculous." I'm starting to get mad "Zayn! why can't you just see? You’re amazing, you can win the whole competition." He stops laughing and just stares at me in shock, I never get mad. " Sorry, I'm not trying to make you mad." "No, I'm sorry, I just wish you could see how good you are." He smiles and says "So, how are we gonna get there?" I can see he's agreed to do it but I haven't even thought about that "well the auditions are in Manchester, so we could drive there." "That works for me." It's getting late so he decides to drive home and I go up to my room. As soon as I get there I go on a website about the X-Factor, I look at what time the auditions are and the process Zayn will go through if he makes it past the auditions. I want Zayn to be as prepared as possible. I write everything important down and fall asleep.
